We have now had about 20 earthquakes / tremors in the last 3 or 4 days. The worst thing is, you just start getting over it and calming down and then another comes. The small ones are not a major problem but the issue is this; we have experienced a big one (relatively speaking) now and the fear is, as soon as one starts, it will lead to one of the big ones. Living on edge like this is not healthy. Sleep is at a premium and to be honest, I am exhausted, I really need a good nights sleep. If I have had 10 hours sleep in the last 3 days I would be suprised. We have essentials lined up by the door, warm clothes, a bit of food and drink and my laptop so, if worst came to worst, I could work at some point. A week ago I thought I was the luckiest man alive, maybe I still do but my current outlook on life is not the most positive it has ever been. Fear is not a pleasant thing. When you see what has happened in Pakistan as a result of an earthquake, it does actually make you realise how lightly we have got away so far.
On a slightly lighter note (for us), we have now heard about the worst injury from the "big one". A woman was so scared that she ran out of her house, in to the road and was hit by a car! That my friends is a bad day.
